Photos of Me (How Scary!)

As this is the space I use to vent the infertility thoughts in my head and records what’s happening with IVF or donor eggs (if that ever happens), I don’t talk about ‘me’ much or my life outside infertility.  I have another blog and other spaces where I do that.  It’s a strange compartmentalised life I have.  Especially when you consider many of my best friends live in my computer and I’ve never actually met them.

I’ve had a few requests in emails and comments lately for a photo of me.  I don’t have many – I hate photos of myself and besides, I’m the photographer – the one behind the lens.  My father was a photographer, my grandfather was a photographer, and my great-grandfather was a photographer (well, actually a daguerreotype-er).    When I went to South Australia recently to visit some friends, they actually had no idea what I would look like!

But if you are curious, here are a few photos of me:

Petting a tortoise at the botantical gardens in Tahiti (I'm including this photo mainly because I miss having red hair; I've given up dying it just in case it's bad for fertility - sigh)

    OMG thanks so much for posting this!! You are so gorgeous 🙂 I love your red hair too! Couldn’t resist peeking at your other stuff. I’ve just caught up on all the other posts as well. Sending positive vibes your way for Friday’s pickup. I know it’s incredibly hard to keep the hope alive but there is no reason why this couldn’t be the magic cycle. ((HUGS))

    Lovely photos! It IS nice to finally “see” you!! I’d love to get my hair coloured too, it is looking really mousey and dull, but I’m the same as you…always thinking of adverse effects on fertility! And best of luck for Friday, you have a lovely thick lining and a good number of follicles. xo

    So beautiful! I love the wedding photo! (And yes, can relate to the IVF blimpery.) So nice to see you!

    I love your photos, your wedding dress, your hair…all beautiful! I think I am going to move to Hobart, all that natural beauty. 🙂
